our yard is getting tunneled by what I think is a franklin ground squirrel. they are really distroying the yard. I see they are on the Illinois threatend list. Is there anything we can do to get rid of them besides live trapping and relocating? My dogs would love to dig and find them but that would only make the holes and tunnels bigger. Not a good summer for us. Constantly policing the yard to only find more damage. HELP
